He now has to face things and some scare him and he is ready to take on the world. This book is a fun read, there is a lot of chemistry and a lot of fun happening in the book that really makes the book. There is some up and downs that keeps you guessing and turning the pages to find out what happens. You really won't be disappointed.

The Closer You Get Carter Ashby

What's the book about:

If there’s one thing Rye Holcomb hates, it’s small, tight-knit towns with high virtues and zero tolerance for outsiders. Fidelity is just such a town. And Rye is just such an outsider. So when he and his brother, Cash, take jobs in Fidelity, Rye decides not to get too comfortable. Which is why he is avoiding some rather confusing feelings for his new boss, Cora McKay.

Cora was born, raised, and baptized in Fidelity. She owns a thriving construction business, has a close circle of friends, and is the breadwinner for her mother and four sisters. The one thing she lacks is a sex life, something she’s never longed for until now. One conversation with Rye sparks her sexual awakening, and, in spite of his reputation as a man-whore, Cora can’t resist giving in to his advances. 

As Rye enjoys initiating his virgin employer, and Cash experiences a relationship with a man for the first time in his life, they begin to think of Fidelity as home. But small towns have brought them trouble in the past, and it appears Fidelity holds trouble for their future. Can their newfound relationships be enough to overcome a past that relentlessly follows them? Can two men who have been burned by love learn to trust again?

My thoughts on the book:

Rye and Cash are brothers and they trust no one, they are moving again to yet another small town. Rye goes to a job interview and with one thing on his mind women. He has been accused of treating them like dirt and has no respect for them. He has and I don't care attitude and is just set to make his brother happy and live on his own terms. Cash is laid back and is ready to settle down in one place he has secrets and he is so ready to put them behind him and move on and find the love of his life but he seems like he just can't get a break. Cora and Adam have been friends since kids they both are from the small town of Fidelity and have each others backs no matter what. They are both looking for love and once doesn't realize it until its right in front of them. 
I am not a huge fan of this book. There are two stories going on at once and I get why they "make" the book overall. However I feel like if both stories could have been told in two separate books it would have been a lot better and easier to keep everything straight some points at the beginning were confusing.. However I will say the storyline was well written the author did a good job grabbing your attention and leave on important part of the book hanging through most of it which had you turning the pages and wanting more.

This Thing Called Love Miranda Liasson Mirror lake #1

What's the book about:

New York City self-help editor Olivia Marks faces her toughest assignment yet: parenthood. When her sister dies in a car accident, the career-oriented Olivia suddenly becomes the guardian to her four-week-old niece, Annabelle. She also becomes a challenge for Annabelle’s uncle, Brad Rushford, an old flame whose gorgeous green eyes bring Olivia’s fevered memories rushing back.
As the two circle each other in their small hometown of Mirror Lake, Olivia finds that Brad is as sexy and charming as ever—and now he’s the darling of the town as he expands his successful lakefront restaurant. Is his flirting designed to get serious, or to lower Olivia’s defenses to give up guardianship? When she finds out about the turreted, brick Victorian house Brad tours with a realtor and an attractive, no-strings-attached reporter—the same place where he and Olivia shared an unforgettable night years ago—Olivia wonders if he’s looking for a future with her, or planning to start a new life with someone else?
In the first heartwarming Mirror Lake story, steamy trysts and surprising twists lead two people to a future neither one expected.

My thoughts on the book:

Oliva is forced to become a "mom" and she is dealing with the loss of her sister, and dealing with coming home to where she has lost and is broken. She has a high powered job and is ready to just let this pass so that she can get back home to work and take care of her beautiful niece, what she didn't count on was a run in with her ex, well she knew she would have to once in a while since he's Annabelle's uncle. Brad has worked his whole life to provide for his siblings and do right by them. He lost his brother and now has his niece to think about and he knows one thing he thinks he has her life better figured out then his deceased brother and sister in law. He has been broken and has dealt with a lot and he feels like family needs to stay together and no one will get in his way.
 I really liked this book it was fun and has a lot of fun characters. I had a love, hate relationship with Brad some point in the book you are really rooting for him and then you find yourself hating him. The author did a really good job with the storyline and the overall chemistry of all the characters not just the main ones. I can't wait to read Meg and Ben's story if its anything like this one it will be amazing.

Well except maybe this one, he parents are in another country and email to tell her someone will be staying in there house while there gone this is not the first person her parents brought home just the first one with out them her. 
Sebastian Bloom lands in Marietta and the last thing he expects is to find a women who is immune to him. He is there for his sisters wedding and he wants no women no commitment and Piper is no exception. She's a girl looking for long term and he doesn't believe in long term.

What's the book about:

In Erin's Kiss by Lora Leigh, ex-Marine Turk has become Erin's sworn protector. The target of her CIA-operative brother's foes, Turk is the only port Erin has to cling to in a storm. He promised her brother long ago never to touch her--but how can he resist a woman who aches to be with him as much as he burns for her? 

In misTaken by Laurelin McGee, Jaylene is an independent woman whose feminist values run deep. The last thing she wants is a man telling her what to do. Until she meets her mysterious new neighbor. He makes her realize that you can still be strong and relinquish control... in the bedroom. But as their passion consumes them, Jaylene isn't sure he is who he says he is. 
In Burn for Me by Shiloh Walker, Tate longs to spend his nights with Ali, a woman he's loved for years. But while Ali's heart aches for him, her head has reservations.

Now both Tate and Ali are left to wonder: Can love really conquer all? 
In Tangled by Kate Douglas, Nate shows up to work at Tangled Vineyards ready to do what he loves best--craft award-winning wines. But when something better comes in the form of Cassie, the winemaker and former owner, Nate is completely love-drunk. Getting involved with Tangled's mixologist is a bad way to start off a new job, but with Cassie as a temptation, Nate doesn't stand a chance.

My thoughts on the book:
Erin's Kiss by Lora Leigh: Erin is the step daughter to one of the most powerful guys in the security world and she is set to help in the family business and won't take no for an answer and won't take anything from anyone, as a bar tender she has no use for BS. Turk he's in the secret world that protects a bunch of high power people but moon lights in the bar in the mean time and he has no problem putting the people in there place. 
This book was HOT and STEAMY but also kick butt. The storyline was well written and the chemistry was just dripping off the page. 
misTaken by Laurelin McGee: Jaylene is working her dream job as a teacher, when one of her neighbors set her up on a date from hell. She comes home and runs into her HOT new neighbor and knows she needs to know more about this man. Noah moves into a nice neighborhood and sees a really hot girl he would like to have plans with in the bedroom for sure, the problem is he has a secret and he has no intention of telling anyone or ever getting close to anyone and that includes Jay, or does it. Will this secret he's keeping make or break them? This book is hot and steamy not a huge storyline as its a novella but what story there was is good and lots of chemistry and is HOT and STEAMY written all over it.
Burn for Me by Shiloh Walker: Tate has always just wanted a no non since relationship and he knows he has that with Ali, or does he? Ali has two things she wants in life the best life she can offer to his boys and love, the love part has always been tough but she thinks she has it, she only wishes that it wasn't one sided. 
This book was a fun book like the other two the only problem is the end, I was not a fan of the way it ended. There are some twist and turns in this fun book with a little bit of steam right from the start.
Tangled by Kate Douglas:  Mac has found his dream job the last thing he thought he would ever find was his dream girl has he finally found her in Cassie? Cassie, is at a point in her life that she's just not happy about she is really emotionally struggling and is having to face some things she doesn't want to, the last thing she expected was Mac and she knows she needs to stay clear of him he has trouble written all over him. This was a fun read and I think one of my favorite out of the four books. This books keep you on the edge of your seat and keeps you all drawn in.

The Wedding Cake Tree Melanie Hudson interview

HI welcome to my blog I am so excited to welcome Melanie Hudson, I was able to do a fun interview and wanted to share it with you and a little bit about the Book The wedding Cake tree so here we go:

1. Where are you currently living and tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’m a free-spirited wanderer who floats above the planet passing peace and light and love around the world … actually, that’s who I would like to be! In reality I’m an ex-forces mother of one who writes books, gardens and enjoys time with friends. I play the piano badly and sing too loudly. I would have liked to have been an opera singer.

2. When did you begin writing?

I began writing when I left forces life in 2010 and moved to Dubai (I don’t live in Dubai anymore).

3. What inspired you to write this book?

The inspiration for the book came from the fact that I knew my son would never comprehend the military woman I used to be – I wouldn’t necessarily want him to.

4. I noticed this is your first book is there something about this book that you enjoyed writing?

Yes, this is my first book. I particularly enjoyed writing Rosamund’s letters and I also loved building up the relationship between Alasdair and Grace.

5. If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

Jane Austen – who else?

6. I love to know what other people are reading I am just wondering what book are you reading now?

I’m reading ‘I Met a Monk’ by Rose Elliot as research for my next book – it’s fantastic but it’s not fiction.

7. I really loved the story with Alasdair and Grace and I love how you drew the reader in, do you have another book in the work?

Yes, my next book is based in North Devon at Woody Bay and is so special to me I don’t want to talk about it too much (I still want to keep it close to my heart) – sorry.

8. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Yes – discipline. Despite having worked in a military environment for sixteen years I find it difficult to discipline myself to writing every day.

9. Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

To my readers I simply want to say a genuine and heart-felt thank you and I hope I can provide pleasure and happy reading through my work.


Can a mother’s secret past provide the answers for a daughter’s future?
Celebrity photographer Grace Buchanan has always known that one day, she’d swap her manic day job for the peace and quiet of her beloved childhood cottage, St Christopher’s – she just didn’t expect it to be so soon.
At the reading of her mother’s will, she’s shocked to learn that she hardly knew Rosamund at all, and that inheriting St Christopher’s hangs on one big – and very inconvenient – condition: Grace must drop everything for two weeks and travel the country with a mysterious stranger – war-weary Royal Marine, Alasdair Finn.
Caught in a brief but perfect moment in time, Grace and Alasdair walk in Rosamund’s footsteps and read her letters at each breathtaking new place. As Grace slowly uncovers the truth about her mother’s incredible life story, Alasdair and Grace can’t help but question their own futures. Will Rosamund’s madcap scheme go to plan or will events take an unexpected turn?
An emotional, fun-filled and adventurous journey of a lifetime.
